A boy has appeared in court charged with the murder of a rapper who was stabbed in south-east London.

Myron Issac-Yarde, 17, was found dying in Camplin Street, New Cross, on 3 April after officers were called to reports of an altercation.

The musician, who was also known as MDot, had performed in concerts and online videos. An online funding plea raised almost £14,000 for his funeral.

The accused boy, 15, who cannot be named, appeared at Bromley Youth Court.

He rose to give his name, age and address before he was remanded in custody.

He will next appear at the Old Bailey on 12 April.

A 16-year-old boy and a man aged 19 arrested on suspicion of murder have been bailed.

Two other teenagers previously also arrested on suspicion of murder, aged 15 and 16, have been bailed until May.
